I suggest a blog article about mod testing. I'm sure that every mod author tries his best to only submit bug-free mods to validation but a lot (me included) don't have too much knowledge about a thorough testing process.

So if, say, A_O_C would elaborate on what a Jr. Validator in fact does with a mod he's handed, a lot of that work could be done by eager mod authors (I know that I would do whatever I could to help validating my mods! :D).

just make sure it works / functions as intended. the MOD team also posted MPV a while back that you can use to check for common mistakes.

There is also a new Validation Checklist within the Packaging a Modification section. This could greatly improve your chances of having your MOD approved.

If it’s MOD related, open a new topic in MOD Writers Discussion, sure. :)

Nope it would be MOD's check-list related, I'm not quite sure it is MOD related then. :)

MOD Writers forum is fine. If it is a bug, submit it to the bug tracker. If you want discussion, post it here.
